Sage Rehabilitation Hospital and Outpatient Services proudly presents Sage’s Parkinson’s Outreach and Wellness Program supported by a community grant from the Parkinson’s Foundation.

A FREE one-hour, bimonthly program consisting of high intensity exercise, education, and social engagement specifically tailored to people with Parkinson’s disease (PD) and parkinsonism diagnoses and their caregivers.
